Vazhaikkai podi

Vazhaikkai podi is a recipe which I learnt from Mr.Venkatesh Bhat from his program Samyal Samayal in Vijay TV, It was so appetizing and a different recipe using raw banana . We can also make this powder and store it for 2-3 days. Definitely it gives a different taste . It can be kept for lunch box . I served it with suttapplam. To give it a try and write to me.
